Notes (1st edition)There are two versions of this scene (blue, and grey background). The first edition has the blue background and includes either carver and dating information in Japanese in the margins, or "First printed in 1949" in the bottom margin. Version 2 was printed from 1950 and has a grey background. Somewhat surprisingly, it can also carry a "first edition" seal in Japanese (referring to this colour variant I guess).

Bakufu, Ohno- Bird and cherry blossoms- 1.jpg is:

Bird with cherry blossoms woodblock print by Ono Bakufu. Size is 15 1/2 X 11 inches. Signed Bakufu and B. Ohno with red Bakufu and Shingawa seals. Also sealed in left margin with printed in 1952, Kyoto Hanga-in seal, and a third seal (I think it's the carver). Published at Kyoto Hanga-in in 1952 by Shinagawa. Overall excellent condition, has some mounting residue on upper and lower left corner margin on reverse. Does not affect image. The lines visible in the reverse photo are part of the watermark of the paper. They are invisible when the print is viewed from the front. This 1st picture doesn't do this print justice, the blossoms are stunning!
